When using onions you get more flavour by browning them before adding the meat so that the're not touched by the juices too early.

Never fail baked chicken

I thaw boneless skinless chicken breasts and cover both sides liberally with seasoning of choice. Perhaps GrillMates Monterrey Chicken or any number of homemade spice mixes. Put in a 13x9 inch pan & spray with nonstick spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Always moist & delicious!

Easy Organization for Salad or Sandwich Preparation

I like to be able to make a meal in less than 10 minutes... so to speed things up I store all my salad makins (lettuce, green onion, tomato, nuts, etc) in a bin in the refrigerator crisper. When I make a salad, I just take out the bin and it saves a lot of time. I use the same method for sandwiches
